@OrvilleLloyd Who’s Ryan?
The singer shows off his musical theatre skills as Eddie.
Get your first glimpse of Adam Lambert as Eddie in a new image and clip released from Fox's upcoming re-telling of 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show'. Also starring Laverne Cox, Victoria Justice and Christina Milian, the show will air on the small screen later this week.
Adam Lambert as Eddie in 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show'
Queen frontman Adam Lambert is set to perform 'Hot Patootie' in the new showing, taking over Meat Loaf's original role as the leather-clad, motorcycle-riding ex-delivery boy Eddie. If you remember the 1975 cult movie, you'll know that things don't end well for this sexy reprobate, who is also the one-time lover of Dr. Frank-N-Furter and his groupie Columbia as well as a partial brain donor to Frank's creation Rocky.

The petition states the singer actively promotes a ‘highly sexualised lifestyle’.
Nearly 20,000 people have signed a petition to stop Adam Lambert heading Singapore’s New Year Countdown concert. The petition calls for the former 'American Idol' finalist to be removed from the show due to his "active promotion of a highly sexualised lifestyle and LGBT rights, both of which are contrary to mainstream Singaporean values.”
Some Singaporeans don’t want to see Adam Lambert on New Year’s Eve.
The petition describes Lambert as ‘a performer fraught with controversy even in his home country, the United States of America.’ ‘During the live American Music Awards 2009, Lambert engaged in sexualised acts, including kissing a male band member, on stage,’ it continues.

Pop star Demi Lovato will play a struggling New York artist, friends with Lea Michele's Rachel.
Demi Lovato is set to take to the small screen from September, playing a singer in Fox's hit high school musical series, Glee. After months of sorrowful news surrounding the show after lead actor Cory Monteith was found dead at the age of 31 after a drug overdose and his girlfriend/co-star Lea Michele was too devastated to even do her own grocery shopping, we needed a little light at the end of the tunnel.
Demi Lovato Is Set To Bring Some Smiles To Glee In S5.
According to TVLine, Lovato will bring some needed sunshine to the cast, appearing on the show for "at least six episodes" and will be the first time she'll have appeared extensively in a TV series since she cut her teeth on the Disney Channel as a youngster on Sonny With A Chance. Demi's character will be called Dani and will feature as a struggling New York singer who becomes friends with Michele's Rachel and Naya Rivera's Santana.

'Lovelace' stars Amanda Seyfried and Sharon Stone epitomise sophistication at the Los Angeles premiere for pornstar biopic 'Lovelace'.
Continuing its premiere streak in the US, 'Lovelace' arrived in Los Angeles last night (August 5th 2013) with lead star Amanda Seyfried turning heads yet again on the red carpet.
The actress, who plays troubled porn star Linda Lovelace in the movie about her life, left the rouge lippie that she wore for both the Las Vegas and New York premieres at home this time, instead opting for statement smoky eyes and scooping her hair up rather than letting her long locks hang loose in her trademark over-one-shoulder style. The ageless Sharon Stone also impressed on the red carpet, donning a sophisticated black trouser suit, while Juno Temple teamed her suit with bright yellow heels and a T-shirt featuring a cheeky Lovelace-related slogan. A very serious-looking Chris Noth, who stars as Anthony Romano in the movie, also appeared at the event, alongside his fedora-wearing co-star Adam Brody.
Amanda Seyfried and Sharon Stone turned heads on the red carpet
Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars and Katy Perry are among the names confirmed for the iHeartRadio Music Festival at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas in September. The two-day festival, set to be held on September 20 and 21, will also feature performances from Elton John, Keith Urban and a special pairing of Queen (with Brian May) and the former American Idol star Adam Lambert.
The main festival line-up was announced on Monday morning (July 15, 2013) in a press conference hosted by Ryan Seacrest. A final schedule will be announced closer to the festival, though Timberlake, Perry, Elton and Bruno Mars are likely to be the marquee names. The likes of Muse, Tiesto, Chris Brown, Fun, Phoenix, Maroon 5, Tim Mcgraw, Ke&ha, Thirty Seconds to Mars and Benny Benassi are other high profile names to have been confirmed.
Last year's festivals played host to No Doubt, Pink, Usher and Swedish House Mafia though it will be remembered for Billie Joe Armstrong's meltdown during Green Day's set. After smashing the band's instruments in protest of his set being cut short, Armstrong left the stage and was admitted to rehab the next day, cancelling his band's tour dates and promotional appearances.
The pop star is now a Gleek
If Glee isn’t careful, it’ll start being called a reality TV show rather than a musical sitcom; the all-singing all-dancing comedy has enlisted Adam Lambert, who was runner up in the eight season of American Idol. Showrunner and co-creator Ryan Murphy announced the news on Wednesday with a Tweet.
Adam Lambert and his ridiculous head
"I am thrilled to announce that the super talented Adam Lambert is joining the cast of 'Glee' this fall," he announced. He isn’t the first American Idol alumni to join the show: Jessica Sanchez – runner up of flat season’s show – had a role in multiple shows playing a singer in a rival Glee club.

The song is a catchy pop tune and the video - a mashup of celebrities.
It looks like there’s a new pop star in the vicinity – or an aspiring one anyway. You may not have heard Bonnie McKee’s name before (in which case, you better get used to it), but the songwriter is the one behind major hits by Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Tayo Cruz, Britney Spears and many, many others. Now she’s thrown in her bid for a solo career in front of the mic. Appropriately, with its poppy tune, upbeat chords and summery vibe, the song sounds strongly reminiscent of a Katy Perry number or two – presumably, also written by McKee. If the poppy, synth-infused tune American Girl isn’t exactly to your liking, maybe the video will change your mind.
The video features McKee of course, but it also has more cameos than a Saturday Night Live episode. Starting with Katy Perry, we also get to see celebrities like Macklemore, Aram Lambert, Carly Rae Jepsen, Karmin, Nicole Scherzinger, Kiss, George Takei, Perez Hilton, etc. etc. – and that’s not even half the list. It also features McKee eating a red-white-and-blue popsicle, but that’s beside the point. This is probably one of the benefits of working in the music industry – lots and lots of friends available for help, should you ever feel like launching a musical career of your own.

Bonnie McKee, featuring everyone you've ever heard of.
Think of someone currently in the pop music business – no really, anyone – and they’re probably in Bonnie McKee’s new music video for American Girl. If you’re wondering who Bonnie McKee is, you wouldn’t be the first. It’s not that you haven’t heard her music, it’s just that the songwriter has so far stayed behind the scenes, writing music for people like Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Tayo Cruz, Adam Lambert and Carly Rae Jepsen.
Bonnie McKee - we might be seeing a lot of this face in the future.
Coincidentally, all of these people make cameo appearances in her American Girl video. Joining them are other stars, like Kiss (we’re not even kidding), Macklemore, Jewel, Jason Derulo, Karmin, Kelly Osbourne – seriously, it’s pretty much the 2012 Billboard chart squeezed into a single video. Plus an appearance by McKee herself, of course. In the video, she’s eating a cheeseburger and sucking on a popsicle. It’s not as bad as it sounds, though. And to be fair, the song is quite catchy.
World War Z, which stars Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, James Badge Dale and Matthew Fox is a sci-fi, 'zombie epic' directed by Marc Forster. The movie premiered in New York last night where the red carpet was inundated with stars who vast crowds had turned out to see.
World War Z premiered in New York last night (the London premiere took place on 3rd June). Amongst the stars of the movie were singer Adam Lambert; producers Dede Lambert and David Ellison; actor and film maker Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years A Slave) and child actor Ruby Jerins (Nurse Jackie). Two children who played a role in World War Z, Abigail Hargrove and Fabrizio Zacharee Guido, also attended the premiere. It was a family occasion for Brad Pitt whose father-in-law Jon Voight and his brother-in-law James Haven made an appearance on the red carper.
Pitt stars as Gerry Lane, a UN employee who travels the world attempting to end a zombie apocalypse. He delivers, according to Todd McCarthy of the Hollywood Reporter, a 'capable performance'.
Initial reviews appear to be favourable with the majority of critics claiming that World War Z has 'reinvented the zombie genre'. Others have criticised the movie for being 'bloodless' and dull.
As the show's producers plan on bringing back past winners to judge the next season of the show, is there any merit to their decision?
With FOX bosses panning a complete re-haul of the American Idol judging panel for next season, it has emerged that producers will no longer be looking to the stars for a new panel, but rather sticking with what they already have. The 2014 season will therefore be bringing back former Idol stars as judges for the next instalment of the long-running talent show, a plan that seems fool-proof, but may end up being a disaster.
As E! News reported on Friday (May 24), Jennifer Hudson has all but signed on the dotted line, effectively bringing her back to the show where she first made her name. Producers are also said to be eying up returns from the first Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson, with either Adam Lambert or Clay Aiken being lined up to take on the remaining hot seat. The plan seems like a decent one as it will remind viewers and contestants of the star-making ability the show possesses (or at least what it once possessed) and will no doubt please die-hard Idol fans, however there may be a flaw to the plan as the move will effectively place Idol in it's own little bubble, free from outside influences.
Anyone who watches Idol and listens to popular music will know that the songs performed week in and week out do not necessarily reflect what is popular in the rest of the musical landscape, and it is really here where the problem with Idol lays. The poor viewing figures of recent series may be reflective of an unpopular judging panel, but it more likely reflects a irrelevance now held by the show in the rest of popular culture.
Then again, nobody can penetrate the minds of those pesky Fox execs.
There has been a lot of talk about the possibility of a new American Idol judging panel lately – possibly one featuring Jennifer Hudson. After the departure of veteran Randy Jackson and the reported booting of Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, a number of celebrities have been rumored as potential panelists. But a team of former Idol contestants would make sense for the show – at the very least, they would be more aware of the challenges the current contestants face each week.
There have been reports that both Kelly Clarkson and Adam Lambert have been approached to return to the show as judges, but, if Hudson really is in talks, as Vulture reports, that would mean that Fox is actually going ahead with the idea of a panel with former contestants. Obviously, the network is desperate to revamp the show, whose twelfth season by all standards failed in the ratings department. The final episode of Idol, during which Candice Glover was announced as the winner, was watched by just about half the audience of Idol’s pique years.
Then again, the whole story might be just a rouse, as many Idol rumours (such as the one about Enrique Iglesias coming on as a judge) have turned out to be bogus. Two things are certain though: Changes are coming and they will be massive.
Jamie Pressly's fight with Estella Warren came after some quick thinking and the use of a "find my phone" application.
Jamie Pressly's fight with Estella Warren in Hollywood on Friday (April 5, 2013) appears to have started over a stolen cell-phone. Pressly, of My Name is Earl fame, was enjoying herself at a birthday party in Los Angeles, until her assistant's phone went missing, leading to a nasty confrontation with Warren, 42. According to US Weekly, the police had to be called and the situation took hours to resolve.
An insider said Pressly, 35, simply wanted to get her assistant's phone back and that the confrontation could hardly be called a fight. Another source said Pressly and her assistant discovered that the phone had gone missing at the original party location, though used the "find my phone" application to track it down. Strangely, it tracked it to hotspot Bootsy Bellows, where Warren and several other guests including Zac Efron and Adam Lambert were continuing the celebrations. According to the source, Warren claimed the phone was hers once Pressly had arrived and confronted her.
At one point, drugs were allegedly discovered in Warren's purse, which led to the police getting involved. "Jaime and her assistant were volunteering for a drug test. They said the drugs weren't theirs.It was this crazy mess," added the source.

Here’s one time we wouldn’t have minded Russell Crowe losing his head. After American Idol alumni and general berk Adam Lambert launched a scathing critique of Crowe’s latest film Les Miserables on Twitter, journalists were rubbing their hands with glee at what the temperamental Antipodean might have to stay in retort.
However, perhaps proving that he is a changed man these days, Crowe didn’t take the bait. Lambert had written (over several Tweets): “Les Mis: Visually impressive w great Emotional performances. But the score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers. It's an opera. Hollywoods movie musicals treat the singing as the last priority. (Dreamgirls was good). I felt like I should ignore the vocals and focus on the emotional subtext- but the singing was so distracting at times it pulled me out. The industry will say "these actors were so brave to attempt singing this score live" but why not cast actors who could actually sound good?”
Crowe however responded that rough and raw was how director Tom Hooper wanted it, writing “I don't disagree with Adam, sure it could have been sweetened, Hooper wanted it raw and real, that's how it is” and thus stubbing out any faint hope of beef between the pair. Shame.
Lambert initially tweeted: "Les Mis: Visually impressive w great Emotional performances. But the score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers," adding "It's an opera. Hollywoods movie musicals treat the singing as the last priority. (Dreamgirls was good)." He also added, that "The industry will say 'these actors were so brave to attempt singing this score live' but why not cast actors who could actually sound good?" while adding that director Tom Hooper "should have studio recorded and sweetened the vocals"
Crowe - star of the film and a fellow Twitter user - decided to use the same medium to defend his film. "I don't disagree with Adam, sure it could have been sweetened," Crowe tweeted, "[Director Tom] Hooper wanted it raw and real, that's how it is."
We could hardly bring ourselves to visit Russell Crowe's Twitter page when first hearing that he'd responded to Adam Lambert's criticism of Les Miserables. We assumed the boisterous Australian would take apart the former American Idol star inch-by-inch, so imagine our surprise when the actor appeared to agree with Lambert.
The singer had initially taken to Twitter after seeing the film, telling his two million followers, "Les Mis: Visually impressive w great Emotional performances. But the score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers." In fact, his thoughts on the movie mirrored those of the critics, who gave the film generally positive reviews, though nothing out of the ordinary. Lambert added, "I do think it was cool they were singing live - but with that cast, they should have studio recorded and sweetened the vocals.The industry will say 'these actors were so brave to attempt singing this score live' but why not cast actors who could actually sound good?" Hugh Jackman and Amanda Seyfried have singing experience, though the likes of Crowe and Anne Hathaway were effectively debuting their singing voices for the first time. Crowe, who plays Javert in the epic based on Victor Hugo's novel, tweeted in response, "I don't disagree with Adam. Sure it could have been sweetened, Tom Hooper wanted it raw and real, that's how it is." MASSIVE anti-climax.
Les Miserables - described by Rolling Stones' Peter Travers as "perfectly marvellous" - is likely to score numerous Oscar nominations in the January 10 announcement.
So, Adam Lambert has finally gone and said what loads of folks were thinking anyway: the cast of Les Miserables aren’t exactly the best singers in Hollywood, so why cast them in a musical? Lambert went to see the new movie adaptation of the successful stage play and posted a string of his own reactions to the movie, on his Twitter feed.
The first of those musings read thus: “Les Mis: Visually impressive w great Emotional performances. But the score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers.” And he continued: “...it's an opera. Hollywoods movie musicals treat the singing as the last priority. (Dreamgirls was good).” Lucky Dreamgirls, there, escaping the wrath of Lambert. However, despite denouncing the cast as not being quite up to scratch with their vocal technique, Lambert then backtracked a little (possibly not wanting to burn every showbiz bridge in town) by saying (and later reiterating) that he thought Anne Hathaway’s performance was great, as was Sasha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter.
“Sorry for being harsh but it’s so True!” he tweeted later on, before urging his naysayers to chill out and let him have his opinion, tweeting "OPINIONS!!! We all got em! Keep Calm and Discuss!” What do you think? Has he got a good point? Or is there a touch of the green eyed monster at play here?
Curves won out the day at the stad-studded VH1 Divas event that took place at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles last night (December 16), with the likes of Kelly Osbourne and Jenna Dewan-Tatum - wife of actor Channing Tatum - turning the heads of the paparazzi as they headed down the red carpet. Yes, while Miley Cyrus was winning attention on the stage, with The Sun reporting that she covered Billy Idol's 'Rebel Yell', off stage her conservative look was largely overlooked.
Kelly Clarkson was the star of last night’s VH1 Divas show (Sunday December 16, 2012)… or rather her huge engagement ring was!
Clarkson’s partner, Brandon Blackstock proposed last week and the American Idol was looking radiantly happy as she took to the stage for the VH1 show. The Daily Mail have published snaps of the star, in her multi-fabric, figure hugging gown, her “canary yellow” diamond ring taking centre stage as she clutches the microphone stand in front of her.
Kelly joined a number of other female stars for the VH1 show, which was held in aid of the Save the Music foundation, which funds music programmes and has done so for the last decade. Kelly Rowland, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and Jordin Sparks were amongst the performers. The event paid tribute to Whitney Houston and Donna Summer, both of whom passed away this year.
Adam Lambert is to host VH1 Divas, the end-of-the-year special that the channel is preparing.
The show is to focus on famous divas in pop culture, honouring, paying tribute to and sometimes poking fun at some of 2012’s infamous diva moments. Lambert himself is very excited about the event, as he said in an interview with Access Hollywood: “I just feel like people aren’t ready for this party. I don’t think anyone’s going to be ready for it. It’s going to hit them like a ton of bricks across the face and people are going to walk away from watching this thing like, ‘That was the best party of the entire year. I feel it. Yeah!”
The phrase “a ton of bricks” sounds a bit ominous to us, but the show will feature some interesting segments, according to Lambert himself. There are scheduled performances by the likes of American Idol veterans Kelly Clarkson and Jordin Sparks, as well as Demi Lovato and Keri Hilson, all fitting nicely within the diva theme. There will also be a sketch, performed by Lambert himself with real housewife NeNe Leakes. Of course, the show will also aim to pay tribute to famous divas, the late Whitney Houston and Donna Summer. Lambert is excited about hosting the show, as well as performing himself. And let’s not forget all of the crazy costumes the self-proclaimed male diva will get to wear, some of which Lambert designed himself.

VH1 Divas annual special has become a staple in the network's yearly plans since 1998, and this year sees Adam Lambert host the fabulous night, reports E!
This year the show will see performances from Demi Lovato, Ciara, Jordin Sparks, Miley Cyrus and Kelly Roland, and will include special tributes to the Whitney Houston, and Donna Summer- true divas. Lambert expressed his excitement about the post in a statement: "I'm so thrilled to be hosting VH1 Divas this year... I have a feeling it's going to be the most fabulous concert of the year! And LIVE!! Get ready for some amazing performances, killer fashion and fierce divas!" If Lambert performs then he'll certainly add to that list of amazing performances, but he's certainly got the killer fashion down to a T- especially given his recent change of hairstyle, now sporting a surprisingly flattering silver barnet.
Despite us all loving all the performers set for the show, we're not quite sure they quite stack up to the title 'Divas'. With previous performers including Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Celine Dion and the ultimate diva- Diana Ross. Anyway, we're open for them all to prove us wrong. VH1 Divas airs on December 16th.
Former 'American Idol' contestant Adam Lambert checks in at LAX airport with a bunch of his friends including his bassist Tommy Joe Ratliff. When he spots the photographers, he flashes them a peace sign with his fingers. 'You guys got two cameras!' He says, then starts teasing them by asking them questions like a paparazzo would ask a celebrity.
Among those arriving and leaving the Jeremy Scott fashion show for the Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week Spring/ Summer 2013 were former 'American Idol' contestant Adam Lambert, reality star and socialite Paris Hilton, 2012 Olympic gold medallist Ryan Lochte, singer Natalia Kills, model and 'America's Next Top Model' host Tyra Banks and rapper Swizz Beatz with his baby son Egypt.
